  1. Microphone settings will not apply


    Hi really I need of help. my microphone keeps resetting to 100 when I start app a new game or app even with my settings switched to not allow apps to alter my microphone. if I could just apply a lower volume to my microphone it would be fine but in the microphone settings the apply button is faded and wont let me apply any new volume level. my headsets drivers are all fully updated

    :)

    Microphone settings will not apply

    Microphone Sample rate won't apply/change

    Hello PetriVKN,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    The issue might be due to unsupportive drivers which are installed on your computer. I suggest you to try with the below

    steps and check if it works.

    Method 1: Update drivers from manufacturer's website.

    Visit your computer manufacturer's website to check if there is any new drivers available for microphone that needs to be installed. If it's already on the latest driver build, you may follow step 2.

    Method 2:

    • Access settings / System / Sound and ensure the ensure the input device and output device are set correctly.
    • Try running the troubleshooter.
    • Uninstalled the drivers. Reboot he computer and reinstall the latest drivers.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards,

    Mala S
